Can loved ones recover if someone died?
If someone you loved died from a defective product, you may be entitled to a settlement for the loss of that loved one. Defective products are dangerous and do sometimes cause death to innocent people through no fault of their own. The only way to hold the manufacturer of a defective product liable is through a product liability lawsuit.
Who is liable for my loved ones death?
If your loved one died from a defective product injury, the manufacturer of the defective product may be liable. Families that lost a loved one from a defective product may also be able to file a lawsuit against the retailer that sold the product. There is even the possibility that the wholesaler of the defective product is liable.
What money can family members receive?
Families that lost a loved one from a defective product may receive money from a product liability lawsuit. Some families may be entitled to money for medical bills that are left from the lost loved one. There may also be money for lost wages if the person that died missed work from the injury.
